Article Title

Hegel's Internet

Abstract

Hegel's concept of recognition helps us understand the self-mapping behavior of online writers. Early Marx helps us understand that alienation drives us online to seek recognition. I argue that it is very difficult to overcome alienation this way because much online behavior only deepens alienation. We also learn that much online mapping is self-mapping, and that maps tend to lose their signifieds in Internet capitalism.
